Each year the Sheraton Hotel culinary team, top local architecture firms and builders’ association design, get together and bake a larger than life gingerbread exhibit. The Gingerbread Village hours are 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., with Friday and Saturday open until 11 p.m. and is free to the public, with donations benefiting the JDRF Northwest Chapter.
This year marks the 27th Annual Gingerbread Village with the "ElfLife" theme! The Gingerbread Village will be featured in the Sheraton Seattle Hotel’s lobby from November 23, 2019 through January 1, 2020. Visitors will have the chance to vote for their favorite concept throughout the duration of the holiday season.
Last year’s Gingerbread Village, inspired by Whoville, drew more than 200,000 people, and the event has raised over $1 million for JDRF since inception.
